I was born and raised in rainy Hilo on the Big Island! I graduated from the University of Hawaii with a B.A. in History and Political Science and shortly after joined the Army. I have served as both an enlisted infantry sniper as well as a commissioned engineer officer. After multiple deployments and 6 duty stations I left the military and began my forever career in real estate! I absolutely love real estate and couldn’t imagine ever doing anything else!

In 2012 I met my beautiful wife and best friend Daniella in North Carolina! We have a 8 year old daughter named Isabella, a 5 year old son named Joe, and a 3 year old girl named Mia! Every moment that I am not working I am spending with my wife, 3 children, and 3 dogs! God and family are the driving forces in my life and I take great pride in excelling at whatever I do because everything I do is for them.

As for hobbies, I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach, surfing, hiking, running, and staying in shape. I love to travel and have been all over the world! I love adventures and spur of the moment trips!

I have lived on Oahu for a total of 9 years and have an extensive network across the islands! As a retired soldier I understand that the stressors of moving whether it is a PCS or a civilian career move can be daunting but I am here with the leadership, knowledge and kindness that you need to walk you through what may seem to most as a confusing process. I decided to work in this industry because I honestly want to help people feel comfortable and confident with what most times is the largest investment any person or family will make in their lifetime. I have worked with a vast array of people from first time home buyers to international investors, Military General Officers and Senators. Most of the 100+ properties that I have closed have been helping military families but one thing that I love most about my job is that I get to work with people of all races, religions, ages, and backgrounds.

After retiring from the Army we moved to North Carolina so that my wife could be near her family that she was away from for so many years. After being away from Hawaii for less than 3 years and building a hugely successful real estate career we decided that Oahu was going to be our forever home and that we missed the island life too much to live away from it any longer. So, we decided to sell almost everything but what could fit in a 7ft. X 7ft. container and move back! It is the best decision that our family has ever made!

Because of my sales experience and history the Hawaii real estate commission qualified me to attain my Broker's license, allowing me to join an exclusive group of top Realtors in Hawaii. Being a Broker shows that I have the experience, commitment, expertise, and responsibility needed to hold a designation that the average agent does not have. Helping people sell and purchase real estate is something that I do not take lightly. Choosing an agent to represent you is a serious and important decision. I am very business oriented but consider many of my past clients friends! If you give me your trust I will exceed your expectations!
